"Stewardship" does not mean waiting for checks to roll in.
I wrote a short post today for Event 360’s blog that will likely annoy many development professionals. But honestly: Sometimes I can’t help but wonder how some large nonprofits got so large.
Stewardship is not the same as accounts receivable. If you find yourself dealing with a high number of lapsed donors or defaulted pledges, don’t blame the donors. Look first at your own organization’s stewardship — or lack thereof.
